Chris Wood ‘None The Wiser’

March 2, 2016 @ 7:30 pm

Nominated Best Original Song ‘None the Wiser’ BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2014

Songwriter of the Year – Spiral Earth Awards 2014

Folk Singer of the Year & Best Original Song ‘Hollow Point’ BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2011

Chris Wood is an uncompromising writer whose music reveals his love for the un-official history of the English speaking people. With gentle intelligence he weaves the tradition with his own contemporary parables. His writing has been said to share the same timeless quality as Richard Thompson at his best.

Self-taught on guitar and violin, he is a lifelong autodidact — and his independent streak shines through in his composition and studio work. Always direct and unafraid to speak his mind, his song writing has been praised for its surgical clarity. His work is typified by his trust in the space music can create and a gift for lyrical understatement. He cites his major influence as “Anon”.

Following collaborations with Martin Carthy, Andy Cutting, Jean Francois Vrod and The Imagined Village among others, Chris moved centre stage enjoying both critical and commercial success on a far wider scale.

A multiple winner of BBC Folk Awards, Chris has toured with Joan Armatrading and recorded four solo albums to great acclaim.

His songs have included Hollow Point; his chilling ballad of the shooting of Jean Charles Menezez, humble hymns, reflections on William Blake and John Clare and wry observations of the small things in life.
He is now amassing a new tranche of songs which are delighting his audience around the country and will appear on his fifth album in 2016.
